May Day Marathon
28th February 2018
Each year we try to get as many walkers or runners out to participate in the Belfast Marathon as part of ‘Team WAVE’. It’s not as bad as it may sound, for the walkers there is an 8 mile walk and for the runners there are either 3, 5 or 7 miles for those who are more daring. We are trying to get our target of 50 walkers out and to fill some spaces on the relay teams on Belfast Marathon day- Monday 7th May 2018.
Would you be up to the challenge?
On the 1st March the fee for entering the walk or relay team for the Belfast Marathon increases, we are therefore keen to get as many folks registered before 12 midnight tonight.
We always have a ‘Team WAVE’ get together so you can meet other walkers and runners before the day. There will also be a barbecue at the finish line.
It’s great craic however more importantly it helps us fund services we need to provide to individuals and families. Each year the demand for services outstrips the funding available. This year we would appreciate so much your support. As the recent BBC Survivors programmes demonstrates, the need for services continues and the legacy of the Troubles continues to impact on many individuals and their families.
If you are free to join ‘Team WAVE’ on May Day please get in touch either through forwarding a private message or calling WAVE Belfast on 02890779922.
